BMW Unveils Electric Roadster Concept With E-Boxer An electric vision.

The reason I ended up with a 1932 Ford is that I didn’t want a hood or side panels that would hide the 429.” Brookville’s roadster pickup body is a slightly extended version of their regular roadster body, featuring a little more passenger room and a slight variation in the bead lines.

Wes Rawlins' 1932 Ford Roadster Pickup was inspired by Raybestos Brakes' own roadster pickup , built by Hollywood Hot Rods in 2010. This one will be powered by a 521ci, 800hp Jon Kaase Racing Engines Boss Nine with Hilborn injector stacks. It has been dressed down to give it a late-’60s

In 1971, Wes Rawlins was a 17-year-old kid working at a tire shop, driving "a clunker Mustang" with a 289 and "a never-ending supply of burnout rubber, cherry-picked from customers buying new tires." Winning a trophy at Dover Drag Strip in Wingdale, New York, in the E/Modified Production Class was an early taste of automotive success. Forty-five years later, he got another taste. Wes was in Pomona, California, at the Grand National Roadster Show as a contender for America's Most Beautiful Roadster, showing off his meticulously handbuilt 1932 Ford roadster pickup with a highly hot-rodded Kaase Boss Nine engine, beautifully engineered suspension, stunning race-inspired interior, perfect oxblood red paint—and brand-new burnout rubber.

Wes knew that he wanted the car built by Troy Ladd at Hollywood Hot Rods (HHR), despite the fact that the shop in Burbank, California, is an entire continent away from his home in Charlotte, North Carolina.

"The key to our success was all about how well we communicated," Wes explains. "Troy knows his stuff, so I took the approach of 'Tie, Troy wins,' meaning that if we came to an impasse on a tough choice that had to be made, I acquiesced to Troy." HHR's well-known motto is "Respect Tradition," which Wes says fit with his vision for his roadster pickup. As with virtually all of HHR's creations, the roadster pickup was started with concept illustrations from designer Eric Black.

The inspiration for the car was not the year, make, or body type, but the powerplant. "I wanted to build something with a Boss 429 engine. The reason I ended up with a 1932 Ford is that I didn't want a hood or side panels that would hide the 429." To that end, there are no hood sides, only the one-piece Rootlieb top. The engine is a Jon Kaase Racing Engines Boss Nine stroked and bored to 503 ci with 9.8:1 compression Diamond pistons driving a Lunati forged crankshaft and a Competition Cams hydraulic roller cam operating the valvetrain. The eight-stack injection system features Pure Performance filters from BBR filters and works with a FAST XFI ECU—and contributes to the roadster pickup's nostalgic "Respect Tradition" theme. The headers were custom-built at HHR and direct exhaust to hand-fabricated pipes with Quick Time Performance electric cutouts and Superflow mufflers from Gibson Performance Exhaust. Dyno testing showed 631 hp at 5,900 rpm and 629 lb-ft of torque at 4,900. The Deuce was always envisioned as a three-pedal car. The TREMEC T56 six-speed with an American Powertrain Science Friction dual disc clutch fulfills that requirement.

The Long Beach Legend from Hollywood Hot Rods gets its name—and The car was completed in one year and shipped to California, and was on display in the Suede Palace next Myers’ historic hot rod , still called the Ed Pink coupe, won the Preservation Award at the Grand National Roadster Show.

Brookville's roadster pickup body is a slightly extended version of their regular roadster body, featuring a little more passenger room and a slight variation in the bead lines. HHR matched the 1932 cab with a modified version of Brookville's Model A bed and tailgate. The frame is lengthened, so the bedside beads are altered to center the rear wheels and tires. The bed floor is a combination of carefully selected stained Honduras Mahogany boards and fabricated stainless strips. The Rootlieb fuel tank was mounted at the front. All bed hardware was fabricated at Hollywood Hot Rods.

The front of the car features a Dan Fink grille in a Vintique shell, protected by a nerf bar bumper (with another nerf bar at the rear). The Guide 682-C headlights were recreated by OTB Gear. The flat two-piece windsheld frame was created from an original DuVall mold and shaped to conform to the arch of the 1932 coupe vent cowl.

Before it was painted, Troy brought the car to the STREET RODDER photo studio for a bare-metal photo shoot, posted online at https://bit.ly/2z9Lxtd. Afterward, it was delivered to The Paint Shop in Burbank, where Stephen Cognata shot the rich oxblood paint, using PPG products to achieve the custom color.

The exterior impression is finished by the wheel and tire selection. The Indy-carinspired pin drive wheels were designed by Eric Black specifically for Wes' car and custom-built by Intro Wheels. The 16x5 and 18x6 wheels wear safety-wired knock-offs from ET Wheels and roll on 5.50x16 and 8.20x18 Firestone tires from Coker Tires—piecrust skinnies in front and grooved dirt track meats in the rear. Front brakes are Kinmont Safety Stop Brakes from Johnson's Hot Rod Shop mounted in front. The rear drums have Lincoln-style backing plates from Speedway Motors.

The custom chassis is a nod to traditional suspension as well as a testimony to technical imagination. The American Stamping framerails were boxed, pinched, lengthened, and kicked up in the rear. The dropped and drilled I-beam axle and spindles from SO-CAL, and the HHR Series QA1 tubular shocks (with cool custom shock brackets) in front are familiar traditional parts. Same with the Speedway quick-change rear with 3.50:1 gears with limited slip and two more QA1 shocks. From here, things get pretty inventive. Those traditional front and rear hairpins are really the lower arms of a triangulated four-bar rear suspension, with the upper bars out of sight underneath the car. Ladd also created a perpendicular adjustable torsion bar suspension system—not a traditional hot rod engineering, but borrowed from period race cars.

Wes pilots his roadster from a Speedway Motors bomber seat on a custom tilt frame, monitoring functions via a full set of gauges from Classic Instruments' HHR series. LimeWorks provided the drilled four-spoke steering wheel and column, and a White Lightning shifter selects gears from the T56. HHR modified a Kugel Komponents manual underdash pedal assembly, adding a custom gas pedal to complete the three-pedal lineup.

The Art of Sound in Upland, California, installed a Rockford Fosgate Power T400X4ad amplifier and Focal 130 KR speakers, so Wes can cruise with tunes—and Bluetooth technology. The interior was upholstered in two-tone leather and carpeted with German square-weave by Elegance Auto Interiors.

From a "clunker Mustang" to a stunning pro-built hot rod, Wes Rawlins' lifelong automotive adventure started with a success and has been getting progressively better. Standing on the Grand National Roadster Show stage as an AMBR finalist might have seemed like the highest point of all when it happened, but we have a hunch that turning the key, hearing that Kaase engine fire, and pulling onto the street is the greatest feeling of all.
